  • The fall and walking trail to the falls are beautiful. Very peaceful and awesome. The restaurant/brewery is a place to relax after a walk. Worth the visit.

  • I went to this park with my family for our 2018 vacation trip up in northern Michigan. It's a great park to visit if you have the time. You have two options to see the upper falls. Either you can drive to the upper falls, or hike up there. If you were to hike, it takes roughly 8-9 miles to get to. The lower falls are easier to get to.Tahquamenon Falls State Park offers a gift shop and a ice cream shop.
  • Stayed at the campground for 3 days last fall. Both tents and RV's welcome, reservations required now. I'm not sure the amp hookup because I stayed in a tent but electric is available. Had both vault and modern toilets. Showers at the upper falls facility. Fire rig and picnic table provided. The upper and lower falls are beautiful. The trails are well maintained. Beware: lots of stairs! The stairs were the way down to the viewing areas at several points. There is a boat at the lower falls you can take/pay to get to the island were there are several more falls. There's a pub and gift shop at the upper falls as well. Awesome place to visit or go camping.
